Spiral Thing Downtown


This spiral structure has been downtown for at least 20 years or so, and I think this may be Thanksgiving square, because Thanksgiving tower is nearby. I took this photo on long exposure at about 8:30 pm after dark.

And it has an enterance, so it must be functional, sooooo it's a secret enterance to a Vegetarians organization HQ whose members wear white spiral hats and do strange handshakes and make mooing sounds when they congregate?

meg - yes, absolutely - you can walk around the spiral to the tippy-top. I think the white spiral hats are spray-painted tin foil, though.

Isn't that some sort of Tower of Babel thing? Perhaps an expensive, publicly funded homage.

It is Thanksgiving Square.

I don't know why they named it that. But it is.

fathairybastard - I think it's a portal to the underground mall downtown - that's a huge thing. And I'm sure it was builty by the company who built the skyscraper behind it.

nongirlfriend - Cool - thanks for the confirmation. I always figured it was Thanksgiving square, even thought it's all more of a triangle, over there. Maybe they named the building Thanksgiving tower because they were thankful to have a bajillion dollars to build a skyscraper with. Who knows?
